Artist George Medici held his professional debut on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 at the Santa Monica Art Studios.
Never-been-seen-before mixed media, acrylics on canvas and sculptures were on display as scores of family, friends and professional colleagues gathered on the eve of the artist’s month-long exhibit.
The show’s title, “Venture in Vulnerability,” was life imitating art, pushing Medici to finally show his art to the public despite his fears and reservations.
“The theme of the show is just that, a venture in vulnerability, as I put myself ‘out there,’ and showcase some of my key works developed over the past decade,” Medici mentioned on social media. “I even sold my first painting! Seeing my works on gallery walls really solidified my inner confidence as an artist and was a long time coming.”
The artist also received his first commission during the show.
